india Updated: Sep 05, 2006 20:52 IST

Third World Cup: March 1, 1975 to March 15, 1975

Place: Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)

Teams: 12

India won their first and only World Cup title, their first world title since the 1964 Olympics.

KL became the first Asian city to host the event.

It was the first time India-Pakistan clashed in the World Cup.

Inconsistent weather and continuous rains forced the organisers to call in Bommahs — traditional witches — to ensure the tournament could continue.
